Look around, take a deep breath, and be thankful...

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching and Christmas right behind, I know we can all get a little overwhelmed and stressed, and after all is said and done we wonder why we missed it all. I saw this article and thought it was appropriate to post for a lot of my friends and family.

I'm sorry I don't have pictures....still waiting for the home computer to get fixed. So, maybe after Thanksgiving. :o)

It's Offical

Jonathan is Captain Scofield again. Gabriel and I went up to Lockheed on Wednesday, and got to see Jonathan be sworn in. I tried to be creative and take a long picture with the flag behind him, but, I was trying to watch the child going through sugar detox at the same time. That's the reason for no pictures with us in them.

Halloween with Buzz

So, this was actually the first year that Gabriel dressed up and that we took him Trick-or-Treating. He surprised us all when he wore the hat part of his costume...but he had such a fantastic time being Buzz Lightyear. We went with our friends next door, and also some other friends that have a little boy Gabriel's age. However, he didn't get into bed until 9:30 that night, and suffered from his sugar high for days. I was even told at school on Wednesday that he had a lot of energy that day. I came home and hid all the candy and told him that it was all gone. My child seems back to normal now.

The first few pictures are at Gabriel's school the week before Halloween. They had a fall party, so the parents were invited, and it tickled Gabriel to death to have his mommy at HIS school. (I enjoyed it a little bit, too!)

Carving the Pumpkin

So, I got a little behind on my, I'm going to try to catch up this week. Here are a couple of pictures from the week before Halloween, when we actually carved the pumpkin.

I attempted a pumpkin, but messed it up (don't laugh at my footies)
